Mini Apple Pies

This is great for a holiday get together or anytime. I've used sugar for this recipe but you could also use a a dietetic sweetener. 

1 pkg. pre made pie crust
Non stick cooking spray
1 - 2 apples cut up
1/8 - 1/4 c. sugar
1/8 tsp. each: cinnamon, nutmeg
1 - 2 T. each: cornstarch, cold butter cut up into chunks
1/8 -1/4 c. flour (enough to flour work board and rolling pin)
Lemon juice

Preheat oven to 350°.

Spray 1 muffin tin (12 muffins) with nonstick cooking spray. 
Remove package of pie crust from refrigerator. Let it set out a few minutes to warm up. This will make it easier to roll out.

Flour work board and rolling pin with some of the flour. 

Remove pie crusts from package. 

Use rolling pin to roll out pie crust to desired thickness. Use a wide mouth glass to cut 6 circles from crust. Place crust circles into 6 muffin cups. Repeat process with other pie crust
Rinse, core and cut  apple into bite size pieces. If needed, prepare other apple.

In a bowl combine, apple, nutmeg cinnamon, sugar, cornstarch. Mix well to coat.

Place 1 tsp. approx. of apple mixture into each muffin cup. 

Top each muffin cup with the cold butter.

 Place muffins tin into oven and bake or 20 - 30 minutes or until pie crust is golden brown. 

Keep an eye on them so that they don't burn. Remove from oven and let cool.

Serves 4.
